Eph 1:16-23 *Understand* the hope to which He has called you

I do not cease to give thanks for you,
making mention of you in my prayers.
[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,

that He may grant you
a spirit of wisdom and revelation
[of insight into mysteries and secrets]
in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light,

so that you can know and understand

the hope to which He has called you,
and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),

And [so that you can know and understand] what is

the immeasurable
and unlimited
and surpassing
greatness of His power
in and for us who believe,
as demonstrated
in the working of His mighty strength,
Which He exerted in Christ
when He raised Him from the dead
and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],
Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion
and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred],
not only in this age and in this world,
but also
in the age and the world which are to come.


He has put all things under His feet
and has appointed Him
the universal and supreme Head of the church
[a headship exercised throughout the church],
Which is His body,
the fullness of Him

Who fills all in all
[for in that body lives the full measure of Him
Who makes everything complete,
and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].
